About Bison Bucks

How a Meal Plan Works

Meal plans are required for all students who live on campus at Lipscomb University. Meal plans are made up into three different categories:

  • Meals are the number of times you may eat in the all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, the Bison Café. Meals cannot be used outside the dining hall and can only be used by the holder of the student ID but Dining
    Dollars may be used for friends if the cardholder is present.
  • Dining Dollars may be used in all residential and retail food locations on campus except the convenience store. Dining Dollars will roll over from the fall to spring semesters with the purchase of a meal plan in the spring but they end after the spring semester.
  • Bison Bucks are additional dollars that you can add to your meal plan. Bison Bucks may be used at all on and selected off campus dining location as well as in the Lipscomb Bookstore.   Bison Bucks may be added to the Students existing Lipscomb ID card at any time by the student or family members, whether the student has a meal plan or not by going to http://get.cbord.com/lipscomb.
